Police in Newark have arrested a former Newark Unified School District teacher in connection with inappropriate communications with minors.
Aaron Holbrook, 42, of San Lorenzo, has been charged with six counts of annoying a child younger than 18 years old and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, according to the Newark Police Department.
On Sept. 23, the Newark Police Department was alerted to incidents of possible inappropriate communication between a Newark Unified School District teacher and a juvenile.
During the investigation, police identified six male victims ranging in age from 14 to 17 years old.
